, and actually jim cooper, a blue dog member of the democratic coalition of tennessee introduced this original. that's why they feel if they can hit the 217 number they'll get more democrats to support this. the idea is, once this passes the house, the debt limit would be extended to may 19th and possibly worked on afterwards, but if the senate does not come up with a budget by april 17th, any salaries would go into an escrow account until 2014. it's not really no budget, no pay, it's just no budget, you'll get your money later, because we legally have to give it to you. in the senate, those guys are straight cash. i don't think a lot of them are worrying too much if they lost their government pay. >> luke russert with the phrase of the day, those guys in the senate are straight cash. i have to introduce our friend joining the panel now, fresh from a stalled amtrak train in new jersey, msnbc contributor and "the huffington post" political editor sam stein. >> great to be here. i was loving the amtrak train, but this is better. >> magical place, my friend. >> what were we talking about? >> i'll

black. republican representative to tennessee. it extends the debt ceiling limit for another three months. welcome, good to have you with us. >> good to be with you, tyler. >> in the last few minute, chief washington correspondent, put out the idea that this vote, or this change of tactics, in the midst of the fiscal discussion, effectively may take the debt ceiling off the table as a bargaining chip. not just for this go round but going into the future. do you see it that way? is the debt ceiling no longer a legitimate tool for use? >> i think that that is exactly what we are doing and requiring that there will be a budget passed by the senate. obviously if you don't have a budget pass in four years now that democrat controlled senate has not passed a budget. you can't get to the point of talking about how you control your spending. we know that washington has a spending problem. this is a way that we can get them to do what they are stat torely required to do. so we are really hoping that this will make it so that they come up with a budget that we can actually talk about. >> so
